Connecting Health, Housing and Neighborhoods in Austin, Texas
NNIP partners all share an understanding of how neighborhoods create opportunities and challenges for residents. The effects of housing and neighborhood conditions on health outcomes are illustrations of why traditionally siloed issue areas must be examined together and why cross-sector work is essential to the improvement of low-income neighborhoods.
This presentation was part of the “Connecting Health, Neighborhoods, and Housing” session at the NNIP October 2015 partners meeting. Susan Millea describes the neighborhood context in Austin and their new cross-sector initiative called Partners in Austin Transforming Health.
